How Smart Kids Earn

Monday, September 3rd, 2007

LemonnadeA funny story I found:

There was a business woman driving home on a hot day down this country road when she spotted a little boy that had a lemonade stand. Since she was thirsty, she decided to stop. Once she got up to the little boy’s stand, she noticed a sign that said, “All you can drink 55 cents”. Lemonade Stand. Although she thought it was an awfully small glass, she decided to get some anyway, since it was only 55 cents for all you can drink.

She gave the boy two quarters and a nickel, and shot down the whole glass in one swallow. Slapping the small glass back onto the table, she says, “Fill ‘er up!”

Without blinking, the kid replies, “Sure thing, that’ll be 55 cents.”

Surprised, the irritated business woman sputters, “but your sign says all you can drink for 55 cents.”

“It is,” the innocent little boy replies without hesitation, “That is all you can drink for 55 cents.

Hehehe it makes sense, but at the same time doesn’t. He really is a smart kid. I bet if the woman argued with him about it, he would’ve won anyway. :D

Toby, the Dog Hero

Wednesday, March 28th, 2007

CALVERT, Md. - Toby, a 2-year-old golden retriever, saw his owner choking on a piece of fruit and began jumping up and down on the woman’s chest. The dog’s owner believes the dog was trying to perform the Heimlich maneuver and saved her life.Debbie Parkhurst, 45, of Calvert told the Cecil Whig she was eating an apple at her home Friday when a piece lodged in her throat. She attempted to perform the Heimlich maneuver on herself but it didn’t work. After she began beating on her chest, she said Toby noticed and got involved.

“The next think I know, Toby’s up on his hind feet and he’s got his front paws on my shoulders,” she recalled. “He pushed me to the ground, and once I was on my back, he began jumping up and down on my chest.”

That’s when the apple dislodged and Toby started licking her face to keep her from passing out, she said.

“I literally have pawprint-shaped bruises on my chest. I’m still a little hoarse, but otherwise, I’m OK,” Parkhurst said.

“The doctor said I probably wouldnt be here without Toby,” said Parkhurst, a jewelry artist. “I keep looking at him and saying ‘Youre amazing.’”

Aww…this is why I love dogs. Hurray for Toby!
